Exclamation Peanut allergy from just being breathed on in young infant - what am I in for???

DD 5 months has had no solids yet. She is FF.
Today my older kids were eating peanuts and then decided to try to make the baby laugh. I asked them not to but they kept getting close to her - I wasn't worried about the peanuts I just didn't want them in her face About two mintues later her face broke out in hives! I've already gotten medical advice over the phone and have benadryl ready if needed, she is totally stable and fine. We need to see our GP tomorrow as per the nurse. Has anyone else ever had this happen to them, know someone it has happened to? Will DD have to live in a bubble??? If she mouthes toys that someone else touches say at playgroup and they ate a peanut at home are we in trouble? What can I do to get rid of the peanut contact in our house - the kids have touched toys. Three of them are outside - can I let them back in? I made them wash hands and brush teeth - anything else I should do?
